For many years now, the series of Translated Texts for Historians offers valuable translations into English of important late-ancient writings from Greek, Latin and Eastern Christian tradition. The present work is a welcome addition to the series as it offers a translation of two lives of the famous patriarch Severus of Antioch....The translation, flawless as one might expect, is accompanied by a series of short notes with references to the characters and events mentioned in it, as well as, a glossary of technical terms, a Bibliography, and an appendix with the list of the bishops of the important sees.

This very carefully prepared book leaves nothing to be desired.
Hubert Kaufhold, Oriens Christianus
This volume is a compendious, user-friendly, scholarly tool which will be much appreciated by those engaged in Syriac studies, history, theology, hagiography, and the post-Chalcedonian period, and it will be a welcome addition to the Liverpool series.
